“My Nonna (grandmother) made this frittata in Italy for brunch after church, slightly cooled, with toast spread with ricotta and fresh coffee grounds. You can add any variation of veggies and cheeses; that’s a big reason I love it!” –Recipe author

Ingredients
9 eggs
splash of milk
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 an onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/2 to 3/4 cups chopped vegetables (any combination of fresh vegetables and leafy greens)
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 handfuls grated, shredded, or crumbled cheese of your choice
Instructions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a pie plate or an 8x8-inch baking dish.

In a bowl, beat eggs with milk until combined. Set aside.

In a skillet, warm oil over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until soft. Add vegetables and cook, stirring, until softened. Season with salt and pepper.

Slide vegetables into prepared pie plate, sprinkle cheese on top, and pour eggs evenly over all. Bake for 20 minutes; eggs should be set and firm, but not too dry. Let sit for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
